The Zero Deposit™ Guarantee replaces the traditional cash deposit. It costs the equivalent of one week’s rent plus a £49 set up fee at the point you move in, and then £17.50 each year.
Zero Deposit operates a no deposit rental scheme that is regulated by the FCA and our claims process is designed to give everyone peace of mind.
Getting started with a Zero Deposit Guarantee on your rental is quick and easy. You can even release a deposit within your current tenancy.
The Zero Deposit Guarantee allows you to rent your next home without paying an expensive security deposit, or you can unlock the money you have tied up with an existing deposit.
Our no deposit scheme provides your landlord with more protection than a traditional deposit. It involves you paying a lower upfront payment of one weeks’ rent plus a set up fee at the point you move in, and then £17.50 each year.
Our process is smooth and hassle-free, helping to take the stress out of renting and moving house.
You choose to purchase a Zero Deposit Guarantee to replace your security deposit. If you’re already living in your rented property, speak to your agent about beginning the process of releasing your deposit.
At the end of the tenancy, if there are no damages or unpaid rent, then the Zero Deposit Guarantee will end and there is no further action required.
If there are any damages or unpaid rent at the end of the tenancy, you’ll still be liable to pay for them. Any disputes that can’t be resolved with your landlord will be referred to TDS for adjudication.
Whether you’re about to rent a new home or you’ve already moved in, the Zero Deposit Guarantee can help you rent deposit free!
New tenants can use a Zero Deposit guarantee instead of an expensive cash deposit.
Existing tenants can use a Zero Deposit™️ Guarantee to get their cash deposit back.
At the end of the tenancy, our process ensures that disputes have a fair outcome for everyone, with TDS providing impartial adjudication
